Kaleidoscope Abelia: Gardeners’ Choice for Year-Round Color

Santa Barbara, California — The Shasta daisy, a long-time garden favorite, has undergone a dramatic makeover. And the result is PlantHaven International’s new Real collection of leucanthemum, which highlights exceptionally different and unique characteristics. Gardeners looking for something fresh and distinctive will appreciate these stand-out daisies.

The newest addition to the collection, Real Charmer, boasts large decorative blooms with fancy fringed central petals. Flowers are cream to lemon colored with contrasting deep golden centers carried on strong stems.

Other selections in the Real collection include:

  • Real Dream – Three layers of green-lemon petals that age to white, with deep golden centers
  • Real Galaxy – Many layers of pure white, fine fringed petals on blooms that become fuller with age
  • Real Glory – Reflexing anemone flower form
  • Real Neat – Double rows of quirky pure white, fluted blooms with bright golden centers

Gardeners will value these robust plants not only for their cheerful and novel appearance but also for their ease of care and low water needs. Real leucanthemums are both drought and wind resistant once established, and they all feature improved disease resistance.

Real leucanthemum — the tried-and-true daisy for the gardener who dares to be different.
